Hey kids, this is an experiment, take it as it is.

The song is from the album "Target Museum" Specific Recordings - 2010
Buy the vinyl and or mp3:

What if the term "music video game" didn't evoke images of bored college kids fiddling with pathetic plastic guitars emulating the last icons of a declining music industry?

What if indie game developers allied with indie musicians, making odd games promoting odd and unknown music while still keeping their creative autonomy the way the best music-video directors have been doing for decades?

What if a song (not its beats, not its spectrum, not its amplitude!) was dictating the content of a game and not the other way around?

These are the convoluted questions that the convoluted not-game/interactive-musi c-video "Inside a dead skyscraper" is trying to answer!

Is there a way to win or to lose?
Not really.

What's the game really about?
The game and the song are based on Jesse's brief tenure as a videographer in the partially destroyed buildings surrounding the World Trade Center site

I knew it

9/11 was all planned out by guys in nuclear-proof suits with mind reading devices!

A bit pretentious, aren't we?

Not funny as a game, not thought inducing as an experiment, not awe inspiring as art.

And yet you compare yourself to your betters and downgrade comercial games. Well done.

Huh...

Now do one detailing all the children in Palestine that died when the Israelis stole their land, or one of the American armies standing in the land of the two sanctuaries. Most Americans don't even know that 9/11 was a counter-attack, not the first strike.

song is nice

song is nice and fine, i have no idea what this is supposed to be, all you can do is to walk and hold down the space bar and then some weird thing beeps, and then you can float/fly swing yourself in the air kind of like you're swimming, and check what people think, and then it ends when you get to the plane which is a reference to 911, none of this makes any real sense at all. and what is with their suits?

it is not badly done, but it is definately not the best i've ever seen, which is why i give this a vote of 2.

Registar, CALM THE FUCK down.
